Resident #1: Jana Göpper

Transdisciplinary Perspectives Based on a School Curriculum

Each school year lab.Bode invited experts from different disciplines to interrogate the collections of the Bode-Museum from different perspectives. Artists, researchers, and practitioners were commissioned with finding new topics and questions, which were then added to the catalogue of potential topics and contributed new perspectives to this pool. To conclude their residencies, participants formulated a commentary, which they left behind in the museum. Whether an intervention that was visible in the museum, a text, or an artistic format, these served as starting points for the development of new school projects.
